    New Lurcher SS

    Here is my new singlespeed. An On One Lurcher 29 on its way to the first ride. The green is really bright but I like it a lot. I put a Niner RDO Carbon fork on the front. The color isn't an exact match but close enough. I like the full rigid much more than I ever thought I would. The frame weighed in at 1550 grams. The complete build is 20.5 lbs.

    Congrats on your new bike. Just wanted to give you a tip... I would stay away from that bike clamp/rack you used for your Carbon frame. that clamp can cause damage to your frame when securing it to your car. You'll notice all bike mechanics clamp carbon bikes using the seatpost for a reason. I had a similar bike rack made by Yakima and sold it on ebay and upgraded to the King Cobra. More secure and safer for any Carbon frame. Protect your investment...

    Thnaks for the heads up. I did wrap the area that the rack clams to with helicopter tape. It isn't that visible and seems to hold up pretty well against nicks and dings. the clamp itself isn't grabbing the frame that hard as much as holding it steady.

    Helicopter tape?

    May I ask what helicopter tape is and where can I get some?

    Wow. That is a sweet single speed trail bike. I'd love a ride report. What's the head tube angle on that thing? Is that a 100mm or 120mm fork? Looks similar to the BEER frame...

    Helicopter tape is the tape used on the leading edge of helicopter blades. I saw a post a while back on using it for frame protection. I put some on the down tube to protect from any mud or stones coming up. I'll send the website that I bought it from later as I have it saved on my desktop.

    Thanks again for the heads up on the rack. I checked the Yakima site and they don't recommend it for carbon frames. Bought a new rack this morning.

    Here is my surly 1x1. I bought the newer 2011 model through the LBS. I really do not like it. I wish i had the older model 1x1. Looking to buy a soma analog in the future, or see if I can snag an older 1x1 frame off the 'bay.

    Search for helicopter tape on findtape.com. It comes in 8 and 14 mil thicknesses. I think the 2" tape works best to protect chainstays, 3" to protect the downtube. It isn't cheap but a small roll goes quite a ways.

    Nice! Did the '99 have disc tabs? Or, did you use some type of adapter?
